THE South, featuring former members of The Beautiful South, are coming to Chester this week.

To celebrate their 10th year anniversary and 30 years since The Beautiful South released ‘Song For Whoever’, The South are playing shows up and down the whole of the UK.

The South are a nine piece band who feature former members of The Beautiful South including singer Alison Wheeler and sax player Gaz Birtles.

Since Dave Hemingway, the original singer, left the group at the end of 2016, Gaz has moved across to front the band with Alison and taken on vocal duties. They play the songs made famous by The Beautiful South and bring back the full flavour and arrangements with this exciting live band.
